Park Rides From the Song Dynasty

In the city of Kaifeng, where once the Song Dynasty held control of all of China, there is a theme park, the largest of it’ kind in Hangzhou. The Song Dynasty Town, a theme park dedicated to the history and reenactment of life during the Song Dynasty.

The pictures below are from the amusement park part of the park. All of the rides, which do work, are reconstructions of rides that people in China used to enjoy in 1250-1270’s AD.
